Course programme

P.hd in Infertility and Reproductive Endocrinology

The department focuses on female and male infertility and is pursuing research on clinical and molecular aspects of frequently encountered conditions viz. polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS); premature ovarian failure (POF); endometriosis; severe oligoasthenozoospermia and non-obstructive azoospermia to develop improved diagnostic and therapeutic tools. Studies on PCOS have confirmed that the syndrome, if untreated, can have other long term health implications such as dyslipidemia, increased risk of cardiovascular disease and non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus. Genes associated with POF (menopause before the age of 40 years) are being screened for mutations in affected women and their family members. This will help to counsel individuals, genetically predisposed to POF and still menstruating, for adoption of measures to preserve their ovarian function. The department is also investigating the causes of low sperm count using state-of-art molecular methodologies. The faculty associates with training programmes for WHO in-country fellows.
